to the military budget is the controversial bill which congress passed and the president signed into law last year to confront the nation's looming $16 trillion debt. the law requires automatic across-the-board cuts on january 2, 2013 that will slash billions from the defense budget. in battleground states like, virginia, where as many as one in four adults work for defense contractors, which build enormous sub marines like the minnesota which is about to be christened these defense cuts could mean as many as 200,000 jobs. it was designed to be so bad we would never get to this point. mike is ceo for huntington ingalls industry. with 37,000 employees in virginia, mississippi, laz and california it is the largest u.s. naval ship builder. >> all of the usual is suspects are saying all of the things that they were predicted to say. it is not the way the nation should be going about deciding how to allocate its resources. >> congressman randy forbes for the fourth congressional district in virginia. >> it is going to be devastating to the economy of virginia. it going to be devastating to the economy
know when it comes to the repair, you know congress has passed and i have supported, laws, including our fema legislation that to the best of our ability to tries to make whole. there is going to be needs for more loans for people to get their businesses back up and running. the most disturbing thing is the inability of people to make a living short-term, because their business has been destroyed. if they were 100 reds of yards of -- hundreds of yards of the boardwalk, this is a beautiful area in and around the area appreciates, and see it destroyed, so completely, you know brings tearing ts tears to, even when people talk like i did about important of pla balance budget, there is always that caveat, we write into balance budget amendment, when there is is a national disaster, that takes precedent, we need to be fully onboard, in providing whatever resources are needed to make it whole. gerri: fema, hamstrung has a lot of debt, congressman, i hope you come back to and talk to us about it. i certainly hope that your family, and everyone close to you is safe tonight, thank you for your
exploded. the court decision wiped away the gray area in our campaign finance law. so now there are no limits to what outside groups can do. and so what we're seeing now is an explosion in that area. although it's a problem that existed before citizens united. >> i want to pick up on what leslie was saying earlier. the 501(c)(3)s -- these are all named obviously for the codes, for the tax codes. the 501(c)(3)s where we actually see an enormous number of progressive action going on in these non-profits, they are barred. they can't write these checks. so to me that's where it feels like there is part of this critical asymmetry occurring. is that right, the difference between the threes and fours. >> there are ones that aren't ideological at all. sometimes the group that benefits a local library is a 501(c)(3). it's charitable organization. a c-4 can spend in elections. because there are so many wealthy donors and corporations on the right, this election cycle to defeat president obama, they are pouring money into these groups that don't have disclose -- >> that $74 million s
many states that were trying to do a voter suppression with the idea laws, now we have won the most of that. now we have to be careful that the accurate count is given. everybody in the campaign has to be ready for recounting. if it goes to the supreme court, but we have to go there. host: are you still there? caller: it must be fair. host: from our twitter page -- steve is joining us from virginia on the republican line. caller: there is no such thing as a voter suppression, that is just silly. there is a voter fraud as was revealed by james keene where he recorded the son of jim moran telling somebody how to commit of voter fraud. there are lots of dead people that are registered. that was the purpose of this to get the dead people off of the voter rolls. the process is going forward in virginia. everybody who registers in virginia gets a voter i.d.. it is a responsibility. a lot of people did not want to have anything to do with responsibility. host: thank you for the call. eight romney ryan white house, it could happen. -- a romney-biden white house, it could happen. the magic n

the healthcare law pushed through without considering republican options. and i think that poisoned everything for moving forward. so i would strongly disagree with that in terms of he had plenty of chances to deliver on the promises he made and he didn't. and during that period he chose not to work with republicans. host: next up is fill in north carolina on our independent line. caller: i just wanted to say that despite the media blackout gary johnson is going to have a profound impact on this election. he's got my vote because the democrats talk peace and kill 178 children with drone warfare in pakistan and they say that's not tough enough. and i don't know how many dead children it would take to satisfy mitt romney and the republicans. guest: talk to us about the effects as you see them of third party candidates on the republican effort in north carolina. guest: right now from what we're seeing it doesn't look like it's having an impact. to the extent they are drawing folks out it's from both parties and doesn't look like it's going to impact the presidential race or other races where libe
if he's elected president. talking about cutting the budget, eliminating the president's health care law and tapping into domestic energy resources. i have to tell you the one message that they have been hitting hard in the last final days of this campaign, they have been going after the president on this issue of bipartisanship. mitt romney is making the case that the president has forgotten his mandate to be a uniter in this country. the president said people should be voting because it is the best revenge. mitt romney has been telling crowds all day long that people should be voting out of what they think is best for the country in their heart. so that is the message that they've been delivering all day long. i can also tell you that the front of the campaign plane we have seen a higher number of top campaign advisers flying with the gop nominee including michael levitt who has been leading the readiness project, as they skaul it. i talked to governor levitt for just a few brief moments in iowa and he said what they've been doing is building a ship, he called it, that they hope will s
, and we need to think about the risks they may post to other people. and lastly under current law before turn to part about health reform, i just would be remiss if i didn't point out in terms of access that there are some eligibility gaps in the snap. now be for some legal immigrants and unemployed childless adults who face a three-month time in a three month time limit has been suspended in most parts of the country during the recession. but basically if you don't have shown and you're between 18-29 you can only get food stamps, snap for three months. over a three-year period. if you're not working. and so that time limit will be coming back in the coming years and is really a serious weakness in the program. and we can talk, if people want to comment about what some of the other changes that are legislative the under consideration in coming, in congress right now. if folks want to go there but i'm going to skip that. most of what i want to talk about, looking forward to the next few years, what is the future of the snap access, and we were think as i said, about packaging step with ot
point and that is that there are state laws that deal with voter fraud or intimidation, and those laws can be invoked to go after those who are trying to deny the american people or deny the people of a particular state an opportunity to exercise their franchise and they ought to be enforced. there are battalions of attorneys now preparing for i election day but we have to keep in mind that certain tricks and tactics that have been used up to this point could and are aimed to try to discourage people from voting. you wonder why can't we have an up or down vote on the president of the united states without trying to confuse people for deprive them of their right to vote. people playing this system and creating phony issues or trying to deny people an opportunity to vote, they ought to be held accountable, and the way to do it is through not only filing lawsuits but use available laws to take action against them. >> cenk: thank you so much for joining us. really appreciate it. >> thank you very much. >> cenk: great to hear from congressman kucinich. when we come back, ben is sitting in l
party said, quote, for one side to demand that we break the law because they feel like they are losing. break the law? since when is voting breaking the law? decades ago we faced jim crow and the polls. today it's fewer hours and longer lines. but the goal is the same. voter suppression. joining me now is former florida governor charlie crist. he's now an independent. tonight he's introducing former president clinton at an obama rally. governor, thanks so much for your time tonight. >> reverend, it's great to be with you, reverend al. thank you. >> now, let me ask you directly. wouldn't extending voting hours be the right thing for governor scott to do here? you did it in 2008 as the governor of florida and you are republican. what would be wrong with scott doing that today? >> there would be nothing wrong with it, reverend. it would be the right thing to do. it's a precious, cherished right and all of us want to have an opportunity to exercise. yesterday i was in miami guard dense in north dade county and the wait was 2 1/2 to three hours. it's unconscienceable to let that go on. the
republicans who worked traditionally with democrats of the past, he focused on getting the health care law passed through without considering the republican option. i think that poisoned the well for moving forward. i would strongly disagree in term of the fact he had plenty of chances, especially the first two years to deliver on the promises he made, he didn't. even during that period he wasn't working and chose not to work with republicans. >> next up is phil in hendersonville, north carolina. he's on our line for independents. go ahead, phil. >> hi, i wanted say i think despite the media blackout, gary johnson's going to have a profound impact on this election and even more so in four years. he's got my vote because the democrats are -- they talked and killed 170 children in drone warfare in pakistan and republicans say gosh, that's weak. we're not being tough enough. i don't know how many dead children it would take to satisfy mitt romney in the republicans' blood lust. >> gideon moore in mecklenberg county, talk to us about the effects as you see them of third party candidates on the

as part of homeland security training >> a new law enforcement tool in alameda county is raising fears of big brother. the tool is a drone. that drone that weighs less than four pounds has an hd camera and flies at 400 feet above ground. the drone will be used primarily to follow criminals on the run, but critics have their doubts, even if it's cheaper than a helicopter. >> the cost of a helicopter, the cost 2 to $3 million with $400 to $600 an hour in flight costs. this system, $40,000. >> we absolutely need more information. drones are subject to tremendous potential abuse, given the wealth of information they can collect, we risk proceeding into a complete surveillance state. >> the aclu is concerned residents' privacy will be compromised. they have submitted a public records act request to the sheriff. >> coming up next, tree trouble in the bay area. the one in front. your home may not belong to you, but the responsibility for it might. and here's a live look from our roof cam showing you a bit of the bay. pleasant temperatures throughout the bay area today. but there's a change yo
the law for more than 40 years and it still is. they're about to spend their own money independently of the campaign if they want to but they can't make contributions. presidential candidates raise money at the national level. there are a loft of wealthy individuals who support them. so the obama campaign stands out in that respect a little bit. the caller is making another point which is that the money in this race this year has been much more focused in many respects on a small number of individual people. the attention in this spending is focused on a small number of people who have contributed hundreds of millions of dollars to the process. i think the number that gets you to a majority of the money -- about 60% of the outside money has been raced from about 200 individuals. so the number of people you could fit on an airplane have been an important group in funding these outside efforts this year. and that's different and i think we need to watch to see whether those financial resources can become more important in elections. that's a question whether this has been effective or
saturday night. make no mistake, democrats have been fighting successfully against unfair voter i.d. laws and purged lists. but the threat remains, some voting advocates expect a record number of voter challenges. the best advice, vote anyway. don't get bullied at the polls, and don't give up. i'm joined tonight by ohio state senator nina turner, also with us tonight is judith brown dianis, the co-director of the advancement project. judith, let me ask you first, what is the biggest threat at the polls as you see it right now? >> sure. well, thanks for having me, ed. we have moved from politicians who have tried to manipulate the laws to restrict the vote to now these partisan operatives. you know, in ohio you have husted, the secretary of state, who has been on a relentless effort to restrict the vote, who now admits there has been a glitch in the computer system. 33,000 people who registered have not found themselves on the rolls and cannot get their absentee ballots. it is a glitch. then you have true the vote, organizations that say that they're about election integrity who are prepar
messages from people that urge them to vote for mitt romney. the texts are not breaking any laws because they are sent in e- mails and then converted to text messages. but, still, people want to know how the company got their phone numbers. >> it's pretty simple. they can just, you know -- it's cheap enough to send these e- mails. can you do it for a fraction of the penny per message that they can just pick a range of numbers and just blast them out and, it's even -- if even half of them gets to some of these eyeballs by the end of the day, that's worth it to them. >> mike debonis tried to reach out to the advertising company but he did not receive a return phone call. >>> you decide 2012 airs every weekday right here on fox 5. we are focusing on both local and national candidates and the issues during the final days of the election season. >>> redskins looking to get back to winning. get the season back on track. we'll talk to the players about getting ready for north carolina and their plans for halloween. >>> better late than ever. finally getting back to business after that super sto
're a nation of law, we'll obey the law. i think romney will win 53% 47%. very unlikely that he can win popular vote and not carry the electoral vote. carville has a rule, incumbents get the last poll. ohio, obama would lose 51%, 49%. you go around the country. lots of states obama is at 48%, 49% and james carville always said, you never get if you're the incumbent, you never get a break. >> let's look at the closing arguments from president obama. he was in new hampshire yesterday taking aim at romney's record in massachusetts. >> once he took office, he pushed through a tax cut that overwhelming benefited 278 of the wealthiest families in the state, and then he raised taxes and fees on middle-class families. to the tune of $750 million. does that sound familiar to you? >> his argument of course exactly what governor romney is going to do if he's president. >> wait a second, the fact is barack obama would trade job creation of romney as governor in a hartley beat. he would trade of massachusetts under romney in a heartbeat. romney worked with a democratic legislation la sure. you look at romne

father-in-law died inherited three slaves. the first lady's great great grandmother and she ended up in a rough rural community in georgia, the vast majority of people were not slave voters, white men worked the fields along the slaves they own if they owned annie and it was quite a different experience than the one we often think about. >> it was quite a different experience and i really enjoyed reading about the people of that day, how she worked the fields and the men who owned her worked the fields. i know that you were not able to determine the relationship between millvinia and the men who owned her. and i also know, code of silence. she never talked about it and her descendants never talked about it. i noticed the same thing in her own family and other families as well. it is about wilkerson who wrote about the great migration, the same code of silence in her family. what is up with that code of silence? >> this is a painful chapter of american history for many families. so i think at the time, people knew. it would have been very clear to people. the people i met and intervie
? are their pockets for the u.s. takes law enforcement? >> there are exceptions. there are still exceptions. one reason let me now have concluded as the frame that is being used by policymakers, the frame is not about investing. it is about capital expenditures when should be about operating expenditures. the frame is about government as believed. we're trying to work with our customers in those cities where we see receptive ears a meeting the leaders are hungry for really profound changes in the way the city operates. some of these are not the usual suspects. chattanooga, not the city on because you would expect on the left bank or otherwise. they decided to make the investment in building out broadband to every building in the city. piercing the economic benefits. it is not just the city government. it was their other vehicles. they were being smart. connecting the dots are hard. we're trying to break down the silo which tends to be the frame for which they think about it rather than looking across all of the boundaries to say what is it that is going to force collaboration and open the system
! >> reporter: the harvard law professor who's never run for political office designed the president's consumer financial protection bureau. she's cultivated a reputation as a wall street watchdog. >> i'm not a professional politician. i got in this race because working families and little businesses have been drawing the short end of the stick for far too long now. and washington is rigged to work for big oil, to work for wall street. >> reporter: there are a lot of people on wall street who do not want to see you in office. >> they've made that pretty clear! and they have sent lots of money to scott brown, millions of dollars, and, look, scott brown's been working with the folks on wall street for a long time. >> reporter: wall street is republican senator scott brown's biggest contributor. the financial sector donated more than $2.5 million to his reelection campaign. but in 2010, brown cast the tie- breaking vote to pass wall street reforms. >> i don't owe anybody anything because nobody helped me get down there except the people of massachusetts. >> reporter: the 53-year-old is a moderate

. the question is can facebook take down what it doesn't like. under the current state of the law it can. facebook is a private entity. it's owned by millions of shareholders. it's not regulated by the first amendment. it can restrict speech it doesn't agree with. that might harm its popularity and the value of its shares of stock, that might cause a competing program or web site to come into existence. but it's not against the law. megyn: somebody thought this might harm facebook by having a message posted by this group of navy seals who have a question about how president obama handle libya. some boss pat facebook said no you won't. >> this was probably a political judgment. they do not and none of the president's people want to discuss this issue. he has a very, very serious incompetent lapse of judgment which allowed americans to be killed when they were fighting to protect other americans. megyn: soment in media don't want to skits. and now facebook? it's one thing if they are not going to talk about it themselves. but to censor private speech about it critical of the president. mik
